as mentioned in a previous post, my mom and stepdad came down for a few days last week, to visit us before we head out west on our epic road trip. most of the first afternoon was spent settling in and showing off (parents and kids, respectively).
on the second day, before the rain and wind rolled in, we went to a nearby pumpkin patch to select some carve-worthy pumpkins. i won’t bore you with details. except to tell you that it cost us $27 to pick our own lopsided pumpkins and could have cost us $10 at the amish grocery store down the road that we visited on the way home for a couple of necessities. blerg.
we also managed to squeeze in some cookie decorating before the rain/wind arrived. we opted for some prepacked cookies from walmart – all cut out and with little packs of icing and sprinkles. i only wish we had picked up some actual frosting, because the icing didn’t go far or taste good.
later that night, we completed the pumpkin day trifecta with a viewing of “nightmare before christmas” and the girls snuggled up with grampa terry, who pretended he was afraid of all of the tim burton creatures.
turns out, i didn’t take many more pictures with the fam. the gettysburg day and this day are pretty much it. the returned to their homeland on sunday morning and we will spend another week here. in pennsylvania. the end.
